Haas  needed fifteen years since his debut at the BMW Open to get a title there. In the first all-German final in the tournament history (Open Era), the 35-year-old Haas was playing a perfect match until 5:3* in the 2nd set when he dropped three consecutive games, but stopped the run holding at 15, and took easily the ensuing tie-break. Kohlschreiber  had won the Munich title in years 2007 & 2012.
Haas’ route to his 14th title:
2 Ernests Gulbis 6-4, 6-7(3), 6-1
Q Florian Mayer 6-4, 6-1
S Ivan Dodig 6-4, 6-3
W Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-3, 7-6(3)
